Gift Membership

Are you looking for the perfect gift for a book lover?  Then look no further than a membership to the charity Listening Books.  You can purchase an annual membership for your friend, relative or loved one, which will give them access to over 9000 audiobooks.  We stock all titles you might find in a bookshop or online, both adults and children, and you can view our full catalogue, which we are constantly updating, here.

As Listening Books is a charity, the person you are buying this membership for must live in the UK and have an illness, disability, learning difficulty, or mental health condition that makes it difficult to read the printed word.  See a full list of the disabilities we support here.

Choose from 3 types of membership access:

Online – Downloads and Streams

Access our range of online titles, either streamed or downloaded through our website, or using the free OverDrive apps.

Postal – MP3 CDs

Create a list of titles to be sent out via Royal Mail (we cover all postage charges to and from Listening Books)

Combination

Access to both online and postal audiobooks

Next Steps

Once you have chosen your preferred membership and made payment, you will receive an email containing the gift code and details of how the recipient can activate their membership.  If you would like a printed gift certificate, please email support@listening-books.org.uk

Important!

  • Please include the recipients last name on the application, as this must match when the gift recipient activates the membership using the gift code
  • Gift memberships can be redeemed for up to one year after purchase
  • The recipient must meet our membership criteria by having a print disability that impacts reading or holding a book.  Click here to view our membership criteria.
  • If the person you have bought the gift for does not qualify for membership (as outlined in our T&Cs here) and uses the gift code, their membership will be cancelled with immediate effect. If you are unsure of who would qualify for membership, please contact our Membership Team at support@listening-books.org.uk before purchase. All gift memberships are non-refundable, and if provided by post, cannot be replaced if lost or stolen.  In some cases, we may allow transfer of the gift membership to another qualifying individual, before the code has been activated. Please contact support@listening-books.org.uk in this case. 

If you have any questions about Listening Books, accessing the service or our membership criteria, please contact us on 020 7407 9417 or at support@listening-books.org.uk.
